Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s multi-billion-dollar climate change foundation is replacing the EPA as the primary sponsor for a major global warming conference in Colorado.
The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions and The Climate Registry announced Tuesday that the Bloomberg Philanthropies will sponsor the Climate Leadership Conference. The move is designed to fill the void left after the EPA discontinued sponsoring the conference in 2017.
Bloomberg, a New York billionaire and staunch environmentalist, has crusaded for months against President Donald Trump’s climate policies. He has dumped millions of dollars on grants to organizations that are working to undermine the president’s regulation rollbacks.
New York University used a $6 million grant from Bloomberg earlier this year to create a center helping state attorneys general target the Trump administration’s climate policies.
NYU’s new climate center will use the cash influx to provide AGs with legal services and the money required to pay down court costs on renewable energy, climate, and environmental issues.
The center’s services are open to all AGs, but Democrats such as NY AG Eric Schneiderman, California’s Xavier Becerra, and Frosh, will likely be the lone recipients because they have indicated a willingness to drown the president in lawsuits over his climate policies.
